The traditional 4-year college is not the right fit for every student. Some of our students benefit from a more supportive environment that might include college courses, but focuses more on independent living skills and/or career and technical education. We assist families in finding appropriate placements where the student can develop into capable, resilient young adults, living as independently as they are able.
There are many programs throughout the US that serve a wide range of students’ needs. Throughout the process BES will work with each family to:
- Facilitate visits and communication with the programs we believe are a good fit
- Assist in handling the paperwork and documentation that need to be submitted
- Stay in contact with the program staff during the student’s time there
